Smashwords book reviews by Wendy Cockcroft

    Finely detailed space opera that follows the story of space service cadet Nyra Hutchings as she discovers what it is to live as the subject of a corporate-controlled world — and that it's not her only option. A chance encounter with the insurgent Caspar leads her into a greater adventure than she could have imagined. As she tries to find the line between right and wrong, Nyra learns that some things are not worth sacrificing. This is a pacy story that provides a researched, science-based look at what life in a future of space travel would be like. Nyra is vulnerable, naive, and grows as she learns through bitter experience that her choices have been made for her and she never had a real say in her life until she decided to throw off the corporate shackles that held her back. I recommend this story for those readers who like Star Wars, Babylon 5, and stories that hold up a mirror to our own society.
